Crooked I: Eminem Didn’t Belong on J. Cole’s “Fire Squad
www.vladtv.com – Long Beach’s own Crooked I sat down with VladTV and shared his thoughts on J. Cole’s recent track “Fire Squad,” where he names certain white artists making a living off of African-American culture, and perhaps are more successful than their counterparts simply because they’re white. Cole named Macklemore, Iggy Azalea and Eminem as examples, and while the first two were expected names to drop, Crook feels Eminem has proven himself to be a “purist” MC who didn’t belong on the list. That being said, he respects J. Cole’s right to speak his mind and isn’t mad at the lyric about his Shady Records boss at all.
